Mine never had that option before the upgrade. I bought the camera January this year.

Re: Sony NX5U firmware upgrade?

I notice that there was an older update of this as well, Firmware V2.00 issued 17 may 2010. Applies to HXR-NX5E, HXR-NX5M.
I presume some models were shipped without this update, apparently on more than one ocassion.

Re: Sony NX5U firmware upgrade?

v2 solved the problem of the NX5 locking up when both the FMU128 and SD cards were used at the same time. I had that problem with my NX5U as well as the lens backfocus defect !!! Lens was replaced by Sony and I updated to V2 when it was released. It has worked without a problem since. My NX5U had 720P60 from the day I got it. Mine was one of the first in Canada in early 2010.

Re: Sony NX5U firmware upgrade?

Guys, i'm just thinking whether there might be potentials in performing a reverse engineering of the camera firmware. I believe on an hardware standpoint of view that, a lot of features like hystogram, slow shutter, shot transition, interval recording might be implemented with a firmware upgrade only .
Just looking at what the guys from the Magic lantern project have been able to perform to the 5D, this makes me really dream that one day our beloved camera will turn in a real monster.
Who knows, perhaps one day Sony will make all our dreams to come true....

Re: Sony NX5U firmware upgrade?

Sergio, i think it depends on which OS are you running with. I performed the update to v4.0 with a Win7 machine and i was almost scared to death when i could not find how to disconnect the usb device.
BTW, in my opinion, having the additional 720 p50 (HQ) does not change your life so drammatically...
